Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April 2017 challenge

This is my design card for my Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper April 2017 challenge. Please click on the link to see the lovely inspirational designs by my team and we hope that you will use some of your patterned paper and join in our challenge ...all you have to do is make sure that you've used some patterned paper in your creation ... and you can enter as many times as you wish throughout the month.

I was commissioned by a friend to make this card - the background paper is some that I've had for a long time - I think it was part of a scrapbook kit. The paper with the punched borders was part of a magazine freebie. I used some paper to match the background to cut a mat for the sentiment that was printed and die cut using a todo die. Flowers, gems, bows and numerals from stash.

This is my card for my CHNC challenge extra for April 2017 - please click on the link to see the lovely inspirational crafting of my team and to find out what it's all about. I hope you will join in with the challenge.

It's also for my CHNC challenge 327 - please click on the link to see what it's all about and I hope you will join in with the challenge - it makes sense to get on with Christmas creations while there is plenty of time to enjoy doing so without any panic. The challenge is anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the option of 'something funny'. I chose this theme because this challenge starts on 1 April, which in the UK is April fool's day when folks play jokes on one another, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a bit of fun.

For my card I used Bugaboo Stamps Crabby Cathy Christmas - be naughty (retired), coloured digitally using Microsoft paint. The papers are from my offcuts box, candy canes, holly and poinsettia from stash.
